The Fremeau Efficiency Index (FEI) is a college football rating system based on opponent-adjusted possession efficiency. Preseason projections (14 percent weight in this week's ratings) are based on five-year results, recruiting success, and returning offensive and defensive production. Strength of Schedule ratings (SOS) represent the average number of losses an elite team (two standard deviations better than average) would have against the team's regular season schedule. Strength of Schedule ratings against opponents played to date (PSOS) and remaining regular season opponents (RSOS) are also calculated from the perspective of an elite team.

Net points per drive (NPD) is the difference between each team's points scored per offensive drive and its points allowed per opponent offensive drive. Net starting field position (NFP) is the difference between the average starting field position for each team's offensive drives and its opponent's offensive drives. Possession success rate (PSR) indicates each team's percentage of possessions played that result in a score when in possession or a stop when the opponent is in possession. Each team's percent likelihood of winning the remainder of its regular season games (WO) is calculated from individual game win likelihoods, each a function of the current FEI ratings and an adjustment for home field advantage.
